Imaan 

Manoranjan Byapari
Translated by Arunava Sinha

100

He is the boy who had entered the Central Jail as an infant and had spent much of his early life shuttling between a juvenile home and prison. With no home to return to, Imaan pitches his tent at Jadavpur railway station, and picks up rag picking as his occupation. The underbelly of life around the railway station creates an urge to return to the security of a prison cell in Imaan. Written by the inimitable Manoranjan Byapari, Imaan is an exploration of the life of the homeless millions who are forced to take each day as it comes. It is translated by Arunava Sinha who has brought over 60 works of poetry, fiction and non-fiction to English from Bengali, and vice versa.
